Automotive

Our 100% stainless steel brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHEs) are used in equipment such as mobile machines, off-road commercial vehicles, LNG vaporizers, and retarder brake oil coolers for trucks and buses, as well as in heat transfer systems in automotive test and production equipment.

Hydraulic and transmission oil coolers are the main applications in mobile machines and off-road commercial vehicles such as tractors, bulldozers, excavators, and harvesting machines. Our smaller units with AsyMatrix® technology are state-of-the-art here, combining heat transfer from highly viscous oil with a low pressure drop that enables less powerful pumps to be used in the cooling circuit.

In engines and transmission test cells, the cooling demand can both be high and rapidly variable. This is very demanding because a quick transient response requires the system to have a low hold-up volume. Our brazed technology has advantages here thanks to high capacity per unit volume and its ability to maintain the engine coolant temperature very accurately over a narrow interval.

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is attracting increasing interest in the market as a clean and cost-effective alternative to diesel fuel. As they try to create a user experience that matches established diesel-powered vehicles, vehicle producers must offer a smooth and reliable start-up in all weather conditions, and satisfactory throttle response. The heat exchanger that transforms the cryogenic liquid (down to -162 °C) to gas at the ambient temperature must offer effortless performance on demand in all these conditions. Our competence enables us to configure compact BPHEs that meet end users’ expectations.
